The RG smart load cell is a plug-and-play force measurement building block designed for integration within assembly systems, weighing systems, and other process automation and testing automation applications. All functions are controlled by commands sent from a PC or PLC via its RS-232 connector. The RG's ASCII command library allows for peak force recall, set points, data averaging, data filtering, calibration, and many other functions. A rugged aluminum housing makes the RG durable enough to withstand the rigors of manufacturing environments. Capacities are available from 2 lb to 200 lb (10 N to 1000 N).
